Vijay Singh
Turned Pro: 1982
PGA Tour Victories: 34
2009 Earnings: $874,297
Notable: One of the PGA Tour’s biggest names, Singh has struggled throughout 2009. He shot 6 over par at the U.S. Open and has not finished higher than sixth this year. But Singh was the leading money winner on the tour in 2008 and is capable of breaking from his slump at Congressional.
Personal: Singh, a Fiji native, is his country’s only world-class golfer. His name means “victory” in Hindu.
